Have you checked if the capacity of the card is compatible with your phone? Click here to check it.

 

If it is compatible, you can just format the card using your phone. Format option should be under settings menu on your phone.

What is the exact model of your LG phone?

 

If it is still being recognized properly by the computer then you can still probably format it.

 

 

NOTE: File system should be FAT32 for your 8 GB card.

when you put it in your phone the phone should create the folder you need for you.

Unfortunately the capacity of the card is not support Smiley Sad

 

Might as well call LG Tech support for a possible firmware update for you phone to support 8GB micro SD
